Backcountry Adventure for all Seasons

MTB Bike Huts

The original hut to hut biking at its best. Enjoy open
country & beautiful single-track.

Hiking Huts
Skiing Huts

Warm, dry huts separated by ski and snowshoe
adventures. What could be better?

The San Juan Hut Systems’ Hut-to-Hut backcountry Ski Route links Telluride with Ouray traversing below 14,000 foot alpine peaks on the north side of the Sneffels Range. You can ski hut-to-hut from one town to the next, connect one or two huts, or even just spend one night out in a hut in the mountains. Backcountry ski trails follow scenic United States Forest Service roads and hiking trails surrounding the Mount Sneffels Wilderness Area. The route is designed for intermediate skier ability, while above each hut there is terrain for advanced/intermediate, expert and extreme powder skiing.

Hut Fees

Winter Hut Fees: $30 per night, per person (Maximum 8 people per night)

Ski Hut Facilities

Huts hold eight people per night. The wooden huts are equipped with padded bunks, a propane cook stove, propane or solar light, wood stove, firewood, and necessary utensils and cookware. Each hut is equipped with a composting toilet facility.

Skier Ability & Awareness

The hut system is designed to accommodate all levels of skiing ability. All skiers should be familiar with changing mountain weather conditions and must be adequately prepared. Skiers should possess knowledge of snow and avalanche conditions while in the backcountry.
